DROP

Mike Wallace – (9% Yahoo, 25% ESPN)

If you are one of the 25% still holding on to him on ESPN it’s time to let go. Until a healthy Carson Wentz comes back its going to be impossible to trust Wallace through no fault of his own. Nick Foles looks absolutely terrible and missed Wallace badly on several deep balls. With low ownership levels already, its best to put him on waivers and pick someone up with more upside if you still have him rostered.

Donte Moncrief – (16% Yahoo, 19% ESPN)

Moncrief saw 5 targets but only managed to haul in one of those for just 14 yards. The targets were spread out pretty evenly among 7 different receivers on a team that is clearly run first. Even if he surpasses Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole, which is unlikely, the odds of hitting a 100 yard game are slim in this offense.

ADD

Kenny Golladay – (53% Yahoo, 58% ESPN)

This one is borderline as his ownership is hovering in that 50-60% range but his ownership should be higher. The Lions ran a lot of 3 wide receiver sets last night and Golladay was involved from the outset seeing 12 targets resulting in 7 catches for 114 yards. Plus did you see his hustle on that interception, forcing a fumble? I’ll own him just for that.

TJ Yeldon – (14% Yahoo, 8% ESPN)

The oft injured Leonard Fournette left the game in the first half with a hamstring injury. If there’s anything we know about hamstring injuries its that they linger and he’s going to fight this all year. With one of the best rushing schedules all year, Yeldon makes for an intriguing pickup in an offense that is historically run heavy with a terrible quarterback. Once Fournette was injured Yeldon saw all but one carry.

Darren Sproles – (4% Yahoo, 9% ESPN)

In a surprise to start the year Sproles saw an even split of snaps with Jay Ajayi at 29. Sproles also saw 6 targets for 4 receptions while Ajayi saw zero targets. We could be headed for another RBBC. When healthy in 2016 Sproles saw 71 targets for 52 receptions. Sproles could turn out to be another PPR diamond in the rough in 2018.

Frank Gore – (9% Yahoo, 12% ESPN)

Gore saw 9 carries for 61 yards while Kenyan Drake saw 14 for 48 yards. While Gore wasn’t targeted in the passing game and as of right now it is not a full committee, Gore still clearly provides some stand alone value and would instantly be an RB2 should Drake go down.

Jordan Wilkins – (36% Yahoo, 39% ESPN)

He’s the best of the worst Colts running backs but until something changes he’s the starter and all starting running backs should be owned. If Marlon Mack returns next week we may see a time share until things shake out but until that happens he’s the guy.
